Miike Snow playing at Bottom of the Hill, 10/3

Should be a fantastic show.  Miike Snow is neat!

These dudes are relatively new (officially forming in 2007), but before forming Miike Snow, they co-wrote and produced Brittney’s Toxic.  Seriously.  One of the biggest pop hits of, well, the decade.  Let that sink in a moment.

The Guardian describes:  “their coolly emotional pop suggests a-ha meets Animal Collective.”   Which seems pretty appropriate to me.

Here’s their first single released, called Animal:

Go check out the show!  Tickets are sold out through B.O.T.H., but I’ve seen a few posted on Craigslist.

GO-BAMA!!!!

Yeah Yeah Yeah!

Go Go Gadget Presidency!

I like that Obama repped Hawaii during the inauguration. Coolest. President. Ever.

Someecards puts it nicely here.

But I am a tad concerned. I hope America realizes that the man won’t be able to make it shower rainbows and puppydogs overnight in this piece.

This fascinating wordcloud analysis of Obama’s speech vs. past presidents is an amazing way to look at speeches.

There sure was a lot of coverage of Michelle Obama’s dress, but not much coverage of the effing awesome guerrilla street sign jedi move pulled in San Francisco of Bush street getting changed to Obama street. Big ups to laughingsquid and takingcareofbidness for that one.

And can I get a hell yeah for Obama shutting down Guantanamo?
